It's been another great week in the land of the Gators!

Thanks to Amber, Heather and Jeannie for stepping up to coordinate UIL this year! Thanks also to everyone who helped coach! Our students did a great job and were very excited to have this opportunity. Next year we are hoping to have students in 2nd - 5th compete so start thinking about how you might be involved. It's been a lot of fun!


Thanks to Kindergarten for creating a cute bulletin board in B hall!


Thanks to Kindergarten for working so diligently on writing with Angela Kennedy!


Thanks to everyone for helping out with the Gator Run. It was a great day! Thanks to Lance and Ashley for organizing things.



Exciting things I saw this week - interesting patterns in Number Corner, students analyzing media, great sharing of ideas, some very perceptive scientists, Kindergarten teachers observing a model lesson, an amazing igloo, lots of 5th grade students participating in the weekly incentive for no absences/tardies Woohoo!
